The High Empire and Grand Duchy of Redluin is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Fred von Hohenzollern und Sachsen with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.412 billion Redluinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Redluin. The average income tax rate is 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Redluinian economy, worth 703 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,406 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, and the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Redluin's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kaiserism.

Redluin is ranked 204,142nd in the world and 339th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Least Corrupt Governments, with 29.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
